"My mission and intentions are to provide you with a safe, collaborative, and non-judgmental space to promote your overall wellness."

My name is Amudalat Fola Lasisi

Founder of R&R Therapy Services

I was born and raised in New York City. My study and appreciation of the human experience led me to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Temple University and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Syracuse University.

I hold credentials as a Nationally Board Certified Counselor, Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Trainee, and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

I have clinical experience providing individual, family, and group therapy services for children ages 7+, adolescents, and adults. I am passionate about providing culturally sensitive, collaborative, person-centered treatment utilizing evidence-based practices that best fit my client’s needs.

My therapeutic approach employs a strength-based, solution-focused model to utilize your strengths to assist you in reaching your goals. I believe all of my clients already possess the tools to live a successful & meaningful life, and I will walk with you on this therapeutic journey to discover those tools.

My name is Ashley Taylor Crum

Counseling Intern

I’m from Long Island, NY and am currently a full time Mental Health Counseling and Wellness Graduate student maintaining a 4.0 gpa at New York University. 

Initially my collegiate career began at Howard University where I majored in television and film production. However, with a call to service and a passionate heart for people and the human condition, I followed my purpose and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Society with an emphasis in Wellness and Development from SUNY Cortland.

I am experienced in individual counseling as well as marriage and family counseling. My style is discerning, warm, laid back, and attentive with an appropriate fun flare. My intention is to empower clients to take dominion over their lives. By that I mean, supporting you in exercising your own authority to take control of your life in an uncontrollable and unpredictable world.

You matter and you deserve healing! My goal is to create a safe landing for you to recharge and relearn, so you can relive and embrace a life of purpose.  This is a judgment free zone; no concern is too great or too small. 

"If you’re reading this I am so overjoyed because it means you are exploring options and doing the necessary vetting to find the best therapeutic fit for your healing journey."

My name is Sarah Garramone

Counseling Intern

Born and raised in upstate New York, I am a full-time graduate student pursuing a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Syracuse University.

I have an undergraduate degree in psychology and spent time working in New York City. Most recently, I worked as a college career counselor for over five years, where I learned that there is an inherent connection between career development and personal development. We live in a society that places so much value on what we do for a living while constantly being fed messages that we must always be doing more, as if constantly striving for more is what makes us enough.

As a counselor, I want you to know that you are enough as you are, in this very moment, regardless of circumstance. My style is warm, empathic, and empowering. I utilize a person-centered and culturally sensitive approach, which means that I focus on you and your unique life experiences; therapy is not one-size-fits-all.

I believe that everyone is deserving of the empathic space that therapy can hold and that there is a long-overdue need to change the current discourse surrounding mental health. I am committed to contribute to this change in discourse, to advocate that mental health care is health care and that to struggle is inherently human.

"Being a human is messy. More than anything, I want to help you embrace the messiness that is part of being human."
